Robotic Challenges, Stop Motion Animation and Sandbox Games

For campers entering grades 4-6

Join us as we design, build, modify, and program robots that interact, perform complex tasks and respond to challenges. Students will partner up and use LEGO® Robots to compete in challenges robot races, mazes and wiffle ball challenges. In the afternoon campers will build Rebel bases on hostile worlds filled with traps and defenses to protect them from the Empire. Later they will take on the role of the Empire and attack each other’s bases to test their defenses. Children will learn how to camouflage their base into its surroundings (using hidden doors and other techniques), as well as how to use special codes to create traps and other defenses against the Empire.  In the afternoon, students will create their own mini movie set, learn the parts of a story and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their films, attach music, and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software.
